Data from: Transgenerational plasticity responses of oysters to ocean acidification differ with habitatLaura Parker, Elliot Scanes, Wayne O'Connor & Pauline Ross
This dataset contains data from a two-part experiment described in the paper: Transgenerational plasticity responses of oysters to ocean acidification differ with habitat, J Exp Biol jeb.239269. This paper assessed the role of tidal habitat on the existing and transgenerational response of larvae of the Sydney rock oyster, Saccostrea glomerata to ocean acidification caused by elevated carbon dioxide (CO2). In experiment 1, gravid Sydney rock oysters were collected from the subtidal and high intertidal zone...
The burden of size and growth for the juveniles of large mammalian herbivores: structural and functional constraints in the feeding biology of juveniles relative to adults in red kangaroos, Osphranter rufusTerence Dawson, Melinda Norton, Suzette Rodoreda, Sarah Abbott & Steven McLeod
Juvenile mammals in their post weaning developmental stages face many challenges in transitioning to adulthood. Among large grazing species such as ruminant bovids and cervids an overarching challenge is acquiring and processing sufficient nutrients to survive and grow, with a gut that may not yet be fully developed. Marsupial kangaroos of Australia face similar challenges; they also digest vegetation by fermentation in a large foregut. In red kangaroos, Osphranter rufus (= Macropus rufus), the dominant...
AbstractThe environment organisms experience during development can have effects which carry over into their adult lives. These developmental environments may not only affect adult traits at a given point in time, but also how these traits change with age. Generally, stressful developmental environments can lead to sub-optimal adult fitness traits and a faster deterioration of these traits with age. But whether these environments affect how performance traits change with age or whether they affect males...
The stabilising impact of natural selection on the allometry of sexual ornaments: Fish that escape locomotor constraints exhibit extravagant ornamentationThomas Summers & Terry Ord
1. Positive allometry has been considered a hallmark of sexual selection whereby larger males of superior condition develop disproportionately larger ornaments for their body size compared to smaller males of poorer condition. 2. Yet many structures known to be sexually selected often exhibit other allometric patterns. This has led to controversy over the utility of allometry in adequately capturing the signature of sexual selection, particularly if static (within population) and evolutionary (across species) allometries are...
Platypuses (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) inhabit the permanent rivers and creeks of eastern Australia, from north Queensland to Tasmania, but are experiencing multiple and synergistic anthropogenic threats. Baseline information of health is vital for effective monitoring of populations but is currently sparse for mainland platypuses. Focusing on six hematology and serum chemistry metrics as indicators of health and nutrition (packed cell volume (PCV), total protein (TP), albumin, globulin, urea, creatinine, and triglycerides), we investigated their variation across...
This research focuses on the spatial and temporal variations in the whole and core microbial communities on the ecologically important, temperate kelp E. radiata. Including the relationship with environmental drivers and the whole microbial community. Our research sampled microbial communities over a 17-month period, from six different sites in two distinct geographic regions (East and West coasts of Australia). This zOTU table is the relative abundances for the whole regional (combined WA and NSW) dataset.
Tspe_v1 (Telopea speciosissima) genome supplementary files for: Chromosome-level de novo genome assembly of Telopea speciosissima (New South Wales waratah) using long-reads, linked-reads and Hi-CStephanie Chen, Maurizio Rossetto, Marlien Van Der Merwe, Patricia Lu-Irving, Jia-Yee Yap, Hervé Sauquet, Greg Bourke, Timothy Amos, Jason Bragg & Richard Edwards
Telopea speciosissima, the New South Wales waratah, is an Australian endemic woody shrub in the family Proteaceae. Waratahs have great potential as a model clade to better understand processes of speciation, introgression and adaptation, and are significant from a horticultural perspective. Here, we report the first chromosome-level genome for T. speciosissima. Combining Oxford Nanopore long-reads, 10x Genomics Chromium linked-reads and Hi-C data, the assembly spans 823 Mb (scaffold N50 of 69.0 Mb) with 97.8 %...
2,3-dihydroquinolin-4-one Analogues were characterised using FTIR spectroscopy- The FTIR spectra were acquired using a Perkin Elmer FTIR instrument equipped with a Universal-ATR accessory where sample are pressed on a diamond crystal. Measurement parameters are contained within the data.
A large sample of homosexually active men was recruited through the mail-out, self complete questionnaire procedure. The participants represent a broad cross-section of the homosexually active population of Australia, both gay community attached and non gay community attached men. The resultant data based on this diverse sample of homosexually active men drawn from every corner of Australia complement those findings from periodic surveys conducted in principal gay communities. Data was collected on demographic variables, sexual...
The use and impact of trastuzumab (Herceptin) for early and late stage HER-2 positive breast cancer in AustraliaLena Caruso
This project was established to conduct a long-term evaluation of the way in which trastuzumab (Herceptin) is used to treat early and late stage breast cancer in the real world clinical setting. Secondary health data sets were linked to examine all patients receiving trastuzumab since the inception of the Herceptin Program (for late stage disease) in December 2001 and since its listing on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme for early stage disease in October 2006. The...
Six in-depth qualitative interviews were collected as part of the 'Researching the Researchers' (RSquared) project at the University Library, UNSW Australia. These data were collected with the aim of gaining an understanding of changing needs in data use, creation and sharing within different research communities at UNSW. Participant recruitment was undertaken via the RSquared online survey. As part of the survey, volunteers were sought to take part in an informal in-depth face-to-face interview about their...
